Knit in a soft blue light worsted weight yarn with an icord bow. I made the bow by knitting a section of icord long enough to tie in to a bow, the secured the bow in shape and stitched to the hat. The pattern on the hat is made by varying rounds of knit 1, purl 1 ribbing with rounds of stockinette stitch every 1 ½ inches or so. Alternating rounds of ribbing and stockinette help keep the hat from pulling in tightly, but still has enough stretch to keep it firmly on a small head. The top of the hat has yarn over rounds interspersed with the stockinette rounds to add a bit of a lacy touch.
